The Path of Consideration, by Mark Houston.

If a blind man leads a blind man, 
then you’re both going in the ditch…

One of the things that I’ve learned 
(along my way in Alcoholics Anonymous) 
is that 

when you ask me a question 
there’s a part of me called my ego
that uses an answer 
to not consider anything. 

I would use an answer to not consider anything. 

And I’ve learned what I call 
the path of consideration, 
and that is that, today, 
when I am asked a question about the spiritual life, 
(which is something I gotta live, I can’t theorise about)

I have to sit with that 
and ask God to let me consider that
